Perdue apologizes to Handel for education comment

I'm sorry, but for some things you need common sense and a higher education. I believe a senator is a case in point.

Obama aunt who stayed in US illegally dies at 61

The president of our country's aunt lived in public housing.....and she is illegal...Ridiculous that taxpayers pay for illegals to be housed, and this is just a drop in the bucket. No wonder our country is in such debt. ...president didn't take care of his own.

Displaced Athens public housing residents to get voting registration reminder

If they are not smart enough to figure it out, then maybe they don't need to vote. Low information voters come to mind.

Spitting and biting, Athens man fights with officers

@thelastresort: but if they used them, it's always a no win situation. ACCPD does not have tasters? This man needs to be put down like a rabid animal.

Many mourning death of young Athens businessman, friend

Not a bad umpire either. Knew him as a cop, business owner and umpire. He had a love of the game and made it into College games. RIP, my friend.

Black preschoolers more likely to face suspension

"If there are racial disparities among preschool children disciplined"....there is not ALWAYS a racial component to everything....but it makes a good excuse. ..and takes the blame away for the real problem.

Jeb Bush in the White House? He's considering it

Immigration reform is a concern, but listening to Bob Beckel, he believes Jeb could beat any democrat. We can only be hopeful that Republicans put up the right candidate. @Used2baFreeCountry:

Jogger, bicyclist bitten by dogs on roadways in Madison County

Ignorant owners. They let their dogs breed and don't care enough to spay or neuter them or vaccinate them. Sad for the dogs. Of course these same people probably need to be "fixed" too, so they can't breed.

Dead horses found on Peach County farm, man facing charges

Sad. I would like to think that somebody would have taken those horses if they had known. Advertise somewhere for free animals.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
